My eldest son (aged 4) has been full time at New Life for two years now, and my youngest (aged 10 months) has just started. The setting is large with outdoor space and there is plenty of activities, toys and resources to keep the children occupied.

The staff are like a second family, they love and care for the children as if they're their own. They work tirelessly to make sure the children do different activities every day so that no two days are the same, and they put a great deal of thought into everything so that the children learn new things and further their development. Both of my children love all of the aunties and love going to nursery. Days are well structured and weeks are themed, and there are lots of sensory activities for the little ones.

It's always daunting leaving your baby for the first time but when it was time for my youngest to start nursery when I went back to work, I knew he was in safe hands. The staff are extremely competent and diligent and he's settled in really well.

I would recommend the nursery to any parent, it's fantastic!

Staff are really welcoming  and friendly they are very patient with my son. My son loves to come to nursery. Staff are really approachable  if you got any concerns about anything. I would recommend this nursery to anyone.



We were first introduced to New Life pre school in late 2012, from our first visit to the nursery we knew our twins would love it, they started at the nursery in January 2013, aged 2 and stayed there until they started school in September 2015, they loved everyday at New life and both myself and my partner feel the staff are more than just staff, they became our friends. Lisa, Rachel and the have team supported us as a family through some difficult times, when our second daughter was born in February 2015 we knew she would go to Newlife when I returned to work, we didn't even consider any other nursery, she has now been there 18 months are is thriving, it is great knowing she is in the best hands and she continues to come on leaps and bounds. When our twins are on half term breaks from school they often ask to come to holiday club at nursery as they love coming back to see everyone.
We would recommend Newlife to anyone who asks.

I could not recommend new life any more. My son Oscar started when he was only just one years old and he started in the 0-2 room. At the time he could only crawl and stand up holding onto things and could say very few words however after a short time with New Life and the fantastic staff there he came on leaps and bounds leaning to walk, talk and is now two with lots of new friends and is a very clever boy. Thanks to the nursery he is learning new things every week and is continuing to develop at a rapid rate. The staff are all very helpful, lovely and keep you up to date with everything the children are learning so you can continue this at home. The nursery has a lovely family atmosphere and I can't think of anywhere else I would rather my children go whilst I have to work. Cannot thank the nursery and staff enough.




When choosing a nursery for our daughter we found that New Life ticked all the boxes, not only did they excel in their field, but on our first visits provided assurance that she would be truly loved and cared for.  She is never without support, attention and above all a cuddle when she needs one.

Our daughter has now been with the nursery for 2 years and is developing into a confident and clever little girl.  The nursery are excellent at communicating with parents, I feel fully informed of both how the setting and my daughter are developing.  New Life are doing an amazing job at providing a strong foundation for my daughter to build on both at school and home.  Thank you!





My little man loves attending NLCC Nursery. I found going back to work very hard but it was made so much easier with the knowledge that he was safe and secure. He is learning in an environment where he is loved and cared for. Thank you ladies for being such a huge part of my little man's early years.



I would just like to write a lovely message to say how happy We are that We chose Newlife as our preferred nursery for our dear daughter.
She has just turned 4 and has attended full time since the 8 months of age.
Our daughter has flourished in such an excellent kind and warm setting. 
She is now prepared for school thanks to the amazing staff and I have no hesitation in recommending this lovely home from home nursery.

My first daughter attended New Life for almost 3 years and my second daughter has been there for over a year. I cannot praise the staff and setting enough. Both daughters adore their key worker and have affection for all the other Aunties too. My eldest daughter grew in confidence and happiness whilst attending nursery and often asks to visit in the school holidays, my second daughter is also completely settled and loves going to nursery. Some of the staff have become more than acquaintances to me and are now more like friends. There is always an open dialogue between parents and staff and the nursery has on many occasions, accommodated last minute changes to childcare hours to suit my needs.

My children aare and have been very happy at New Life and I would recommend the nursery to anyone who asked me.

Choosing a nursery for my daughter was a huge responsibility, as it is for any parent, but my daughter has an additional medical condition that made this task a whole lot harder. We visited quite a few nurseries in Wakefield and New Life was where we felt the most confident to send her, they’ve been fantastic. They took away my anxieties around my daughters medical condition almost straight away, this has been a massive relief to say the least. My daughter has thrived at the nursery and she learns so much, she started when she had just turned two and going to the nursery brought her speech on so much, she always comes home having learnt something new. I can’t recommend the nursery anymore highly, it’s a wonderful nurturing environment with excellent and caring staff. The Manager and Deputy Manager of New life, Lisa & Rachel, are second to none, which makes a huge difference as they are the driving force of the Nursery, everything they do has the children’s best interests at heart.

Best wishes
